Packet Pickup Details

Before a race we need to pass along a few items to you and it is tough to pull that off an hour before the event. Visiting us in advance will help us make sure you are all set for race day. It is a good chance for you to ask any questions you may have and pick up any gear you might need. We often have packet pickup sales and otherwise try to make it worth your while to make the trip.

New in 2018: NO RACE DAY PACKET PICK UP FOR THE ST. PAT'S RUN. We apologize in advance for the inconvenience.

Please note that the packet pickup location(s) vary from race to race. So, be sure to double check where you need to go!

What to Expect

When you arrive at either Pacers 14th Street or Pacers Alexandria, look for a special table manned by our friendly events staff and volunteers.

If there is a line, it should move quickly. We use a dynamic bib assignment system which means all we need to know is your name and after confirming your registration, we will assign you a bib number on the spot. We won’t have to dig through a pile to find a pre-assigned bib. This definitely speeds things up.

We will give you a clear race bag along with your bib, safety pins, and premium.

You may pick up a race bag or bags for other people. No ID is required.

We cannot hold complete packets but after the race there will be opportunity to pick up your unclaimed t-shirt at Pacers 14th Street.  See our St. Pat’s Run FAQ’s for more details.

Included in Your Race Bag

Here’s the goods. You will be provided a clear race bag and your premium (a SiliPint, Retail Bucks, or a Thank You for your donation to the event charity), as well as the race bib with attached timing tag and safety pins.

Be sure to save the bag as you will need it to check any personal items prior to the race at the bag check area.
